gun laws, in colorado, law enforcement officials say they need more money to conduct the surge in criminal background checks that are required for gun buyers. they are going to ask law makes for half a million dollars to speed up the process which used to take about half an hour and now takes about a week. process is free which has one lawmaker suggesting that those that want gun pay for it themselves. telling the denver post, quote, anyone else whether a teacher or law enforcement officer anyone needing a background check needs to pay for it. meantime, her it's already legal to carry a gun a record number of educators attended a training seminar earlier this week. >> we are teachers, all school employees for their application and permit to carry a firearm. in utah they have the advantage of beings able to carry one in schools. we do not restrict law abiding with a permit of carrying one in a school. >> hawaii, new hampshire and oregon allow them to carry one on campus. arizona and washington state looking into the proposal. it will face stiff resistance from gun control advoca
and better from my perspective, he's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, y
in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will
into law have failed anyway if you hadn't? >> there is no question but that a number of places where we went in and invest it, we were investing in an enterprise that was in trouble. with the future was very much in doubt for it and we invested in one business that lost 50 or $60 million more the year before we invested and a lot of people didn't want to touch it. we were able to go in there with the current management team, helped get the business back on track. the managers' training but they were able to turn it around as a success and it is still around today doing quite well. provides jobs for a lot of people. the idea that somehow making a business profitable is different than helping people is really a foreign idea because the whole american free enterprise system is associated with creating success, making business is profitable. they can hire more people and growth. every investment that i made while i was responsible for an investment firm, every investment was designed to help the business grow and to become more successful. >> up next, one of my most frustrating interviews.
enshrines, i think, a principle into law that will remain in place as long as i am president. the deficit needs to be reduced in a way that's balanced. everyone pays their fair share. everyone does their part. that's how our economy works best. that's how we grow. >>steve: the good news for the republicans is the president had ran on the theory, okay, in my second term i'm going to raise rates on millionaires and billionaires. and mitt romney is a horrible person. you can't possibly elect him. >>brian: mitt romney is the guy with the car elevator and the dancing horse. >>steve: what this is going to do is this is going to take away from the president because we have raised taxes on the most successful, that particular argument. the republicans stand for this. looming ahead is a gigantic show down overt sequester, gigantic budget cuts. >>brian: two months. >>steve: plus the debt ceiling. the republicans feel they have the upper hand on that. meanwhile, we've got a little montage of some of the tempers flaring and nostrils as well on capitol hill as lawmakers made the sausage known as the c
phased out for more energy-efficient ones. >>> a new law in australia is banning ladies' nights. is it's part of an effort to tackle binge drinking but some bars found a little hole that says if the deal applies to everyone it's okay. so they might be offering drinks to men. >> despite the last-minute deal settled in the u.s. senate last night, the united states has technically fallen off the fiscal cliff as of now. the house has not voted and the president has not signed anything. why couldn't washington have solved this problem earlier? they have had it for over a year. did it have to be pushed to the very last second? i'm joined by debby dingle and ron myer. does it have to be done like this? >> i think all of us would like to see it not done like this, but i think the reality of what the tax increase would be to 100% of americans, i still think we're going to hear a lost static on the house side before you see that vote. it takes coming down to the wire, unfortunately, too much in washington to get the answer to occur. we're only punting. it's going to make march madness a new defi
that mean? freedom of information law. this is information the general public could have obtained on their own. the paper obtained it. finally, listen to this, there is a provision within foia and it says if the government feels request is unduly intrusive or invase i have privacy it could be denied. it was not denied. they gave it to the paper. they published it. jamie: they did not publish all the information. the some information government did not feel was appropriate to release. let me pose this to you, rebecca, this is policy issue rather than legal question. one of the people wrote me back, a friend of mine in texas, a former black hawk pilot, female friend of mind, please publish my address, let robbers know i'm well-armed and locked and loaded. >> that is what she said because she can protect herself. what about all the citizens who have absolute legal right to bear arms who are now basically outed for criminals to come in to attempt to get their firearms? because on the black market, firearms are extremely profitable. i just think it was, irresponsible of the newspaper.
